Hi i have just bought my first alfa romeo, i went for a 156 2.0 selespeed. After 1 weeks trouble free motoring the car has developed a problem. The car starts perfect and seems fine untill i try to change up gears from first to second. The car pauses for 3-5 seconds before missing out second gear and going straight into 3rd. The car gears down spot on fron 3rd to 2nd without a problem and drives in second perfect. second gear works fine, it just wont select second when moving up from 1st gear. I dont get any warning lights or anything like that, no untoward noises it just misses 2nd.Can anyone offer any suggestions or can some 1 direct me to another post with the same problem. I have read through a post about selespeed boxes (selespeed info) and followed the link to the trouble shooting page some 1 has posted but my problem doesnt seem to be there. If anyone has any suggestions i am all ears. Thanks for taking your time to read this and i hope to hear back from some one soon.
